Is there any way to move the location of the toolbar on the text widget? It obscures the top line(s) of text which is a pain in my a when trying to type, edit, and format text. If this isn't possible, it seems like this is a glaringly obvious and stupid design choice. 

I much preferred Web App Builder as opposed to Experience Builder, as everything in EB seems to require a lot more behind the scenes work just to make it function, but since WAB doesn't play nice with maps that have functionality from the newer Map Viewer, I am forced to use EB.

Hi @NormBetland ,

Thank you for your post; feedback and ideas are always welcome!

It appears the toolbar will move depending on where your widget is placed on the page, within the constrainst of the page. The toolbar covers the content when the Text widget occupied the full height of the page. Moving the widget while adding the text should prevent the toolbar from covering it.

If you are looking for an app builder with predefined layouts and less freeform configuration, please take a look at the different Instant App templates. Maybe one of these could also suit your current needs.

The Instant Apps don't have a template for what I'm specifically looking for at this time. My feedback is definitely that users should be able to edit a text widget in place and not have the toolbar obscure the widget.
